Vintage Boho Luxe - An ode to the 1970's

I often log onto Net-a-Porter and cruise through their runway lookbooks (and drool over/daydream about the delicious new designer frocks) to see what's coming through for the various seasons and find out what vintage fashion and era's each designer is currently referencing for their collections.

It took about 2 minutes to get up to date today...Europe has gone boho luxe this summer. Designers, it seems, have checked out of classic 1950's prim and proper nipped in waists and gone all 1970's hippie with a sophicated edge. Boho Chic references vintage clothing with gorgeous fabrics with lots of embelliments and trim.

Fabrics include metallic lame, velvets and floaty chiffons with big ethnic patterns and crazy bright florals made into amazing vintage style kaftans, long line flowing blouses and classic vintage stlye maxi dresses...simply pile on plenty of metal and beaded jewellery, a pair of fab roman sandals and you are ready for summer. Now...if only it wasn't 13 degree's outside ;->
